November 27, 2017 (No Comments) by Olivia Virlan

Regardless of your accommodation needs, we’re sure you’ll admit that searching for the right room, in the right location and for the right price can be a time consuming process. To quote a modern pop culture icon – “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”.

So, we at The Sharpe, have compiled a list of the 5 must-have apps for real-life explorers. Who knows, in addition to saving you time, you could pick up a bargain or two.

Booking.com

Booking.com has become the largest hotel site out there, and if you’re booking a room, having their app is a no brainer. You can book your hotel room, apartment or B&B in just a couple of minutes and the fact they offer free cancellation with every room means that you can cancel if you find a room cheaper elsewhere, even if that room ends up being on their own website.

Another cool feature is booking.com’s deal of the day, which appears first upon opening the app, and shows you the best accommodation for the location you’ve searched.

You can download the booking.com app on iOS by clicking here or on Android by clicking here.

Hopper

Hopper is a mobile app that not only allows you to book flights, but it also predicts when the prices for your chosen destination will be cheapest; Hopper will even send you a notification when the price has dropped. According to Hopper, you’re guaranteed to save €50 per flight (on average) by using their price prediction feature.

You can also choose multiple different options at a time and wait for the prices to drop on all of them; you can then proceed and purchase your flights directly through the app. Nice one, bunny!

You can download the Hopper app here.

Airbnb

Airbnb is a great concept; it allows you to book entire homes and private rooms owned by real people which can save you money and can make for an awesome experience.

I know what you’re thinking – “I’ll just book a hotel, it’s way less effort”, but trust us, Airbnb is a singe and just like other accommodation apps, you can have your room booked in no time. Also, guests review Airbnb properties after their stay, so you can check out genuine customer experiences before you make your decision. Go on, try something new for a change.

You can download the Airbnb app here.

Hotel Tonight

If you’re going away on a one-night trip, you can sometimes find it difficult to find somewhere decent to stay; lo and behold Hotel Tonight. With Hotel Tonight, you are guaranteed the best overnight stays offered at high discounts.

You can choose from locations all around the world, wherever you may be staying! Hotel Tonight is a mobile travel app for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows devices so you can start booking and saving on the go.

Download their app on iOS here or Android here.

Expedia

Another money saving app is Expedia. Just like the others, this easy to use app has all that you need to organise your perfect holiday. From flights and hotels to car rentals and things to do, you’re able to book your whole trip in one place.

The Expedia apps also allows you to save 16% more if you book your flights and hotels together, and an additional 10% just for signing up. Their flash sales are always phenomenal, and great if you’re on the lookout for a small (or big) getaway.

So download the app here, turn your notifications on and you could nab an absolute bargain.

So, there you have it! 5 apps to help organise your next trip, be it a work ‘overnighter’, or if you’re looking to book a Christmas getaway. If you’re taking a quick trip around Europe, then you should be sure to check out our Perfect European Getaway Guide for some more great travel tips. Happy travelling.
